"This illustrated talk will explore the various ways in which horses played a critical role in the operations of the city, such as hauling passengers and freight, delivering goods, and providing stationary power. The presence of the horse was reflected in the urban built environment, including stables, hitching posts, cobblestone streets, blacksmith shops, establishments providing harnesses, horse blankets and specialized clothing for riders. Learn how the horse impacted issues of public health and safety in the city and why the automobile replaced it so rapidly in the urban context." (alibrarian)
